New Harvest Investment Management recognises that as a responsible agricultural business, sound environmental, social and governance practices will play an important role in the future of the planet.
Environmentally, we must ensure we leave a healthier footprint behind in every step we take. We have developed operating policies and procedures to ensure that all enterprise’s we are involved with strive to be industry leaders in this area. Adaptation and active development of new technologies play an important role in minimising our footprint.
Socially, we recognise and respect the ancestors of our land, adhere to international human right standards and workplace gender diversity. We have a proven capability to ensure we manage our business to the highest standard of operational health and safety.
We also take pride in ensuring that we provide a pathway for younger generations to pursue careers in the agricultural industry. Encouraging all our staff to learn from each other and participate in structured external training courses.
Governance, New Harvest has sound corporate governance policies and procedures to aid in the efficient and ethical operations of the business. On behalf of the investor, New Harvest Investment Management continually evaluates and analyses these policies and procedures.
The fund provides the potential for investors to participate in sustainable farming practices, adding social value whilst achieving financial rewards. New Harvest follows Australian accounting standards and transparency for all investors.
New Harvest Investment Management continually benchmarks its operations against internationally recognised standards such as the Principles of Responsible Investment developed by the United Nations, particularly focusing on those relating to Farmland Investment.
